    1. In this context, the objective of thisstudy is to increase knowledge of the motivations and patterns of behaviour of foodstagrammertourists and to contribute new insights about this phenomenon. In the first part of the article,therefore, we establish the framework for the characteristics and motivations of foodstagrammertourists. We then describe the ethnographic methodology employed in this study and presentour detailed fieldwork. Finally, we explain our findings and discuss the phenomenon of foodsta-grammer tourists and their managerial implications.

      The research study, 'An Ethnographic Study of Motivations of Foodstagrammer tourists' highlights how a research question may be portrayed by using a broad research statement to identify their overarching focus of inquiry as opposed to directly stating a research question. In this study, it is found in the goals of the study and could be converted to a question format. Stating the purpose for the inquiry works as effectively as proposing a prompt research question.

    1. The sodium-restricted diet group received a regimen aiming a maximum intake of 3 g of sodium per day (equivalent to 7.5 g of sodium chloride).

      That sounds incredibly high to me. 3000 mg is the absolute maximum intake that could ever be considered 'low' sodium. Under 1500 is usually considered ideal. Would, then, a diet aiming for half the sodium be twice as effective?

    1. Abstract

      Abstract is a sale's pitch, I would say. It summarizes the whole article, and helps the audiences like you and me, to determine whether/how this work might be relevant.

      In the following abstract, identify the research question, highlight it, and state it in your own words (because the authors ask something quite different from what they propose in the beginning).

    1. Estimating the Effect of Asking About Citizenship on the U.S. Census March 21, 2019, 1:21 pm

      This is a really interesting article in so many ways; it speaks to a larger political issue of our time, it uses an innovative method (an experiment!), and it follows a very generic and general structure of a social science research paper. Think of this as an ideal or prototype of social science research.

    1. A political cartoon can be better understood if we know the offices of state that the individuals held at the time of the cartoon, and here is where it helps to combine artwork data and political data on the same platform.

    1. What does it mean, I asked you, to witness mass extinction—the end of so much ‘worldly striving?’ What could, or should it mean to us, or motivate us to do?

      This is my understanding of the author's central research question and that she is looking to illicit a 'call-to-action' of sorts.

    1. o those in the population who currently lack it, we can then examine how their social network changes, and how their social capital is impacted. 

      This is an excellent research question! Does access and use of social media improve the mental and emotional health of older people/

    1. Liquid argon is used as the target for neutrino experiments and direct dark matter searches.

      Can someone explain to me why argon is used in these experiments and what they are for? I am working on a science project (I am in the 4th grade). Thank you!
